From the Union: LOCKOUT IS OVER!!!!!
It is with great pride and relief we are announcing that effective 9/17/2016 at 6:00 a.m. the lockout of all UGWU Local 69 members will end!!!!
The Union and the Company have reached an agreement that ended the lockout of our members. The agreement reached will fully back pay each member for any lost wages during the entire lockout as well as no break in our insurance. This agreement also continues until April 1, 2017. We have agreed to return to the table and continue bargaining to reach a fair and equitable contract for both sides. Tentative dates to bargain are set for October 3,4,5. "The membership should be proud of their efforts as they played a major role in this agreement being reached" Craig Bradford President. Members who were scheduled to work on Saturday should report to work. Starting immediately we are asking the membership to end all picketing. Contact your Steward, Director or Officer for further details. PROUND TO BE UNION PROUD OF OUR UNION.
